Applications are open for the United Nations Fellowship 2023. The 10 month long fellowship is open to all nationalities and the deadline is 1st February 2023.
The Local Pathways Fellowship seeks to provide young leaders with a platform, a guiding framework for action, and connect them with leading development experts and practitioners:
The fellows will take on a 10-month journey throughout which they will explore pathways for “localizing” the globally adopted goals and targets, exchange knowledge and ideas, and work to engage local stakeholders in a dialogue around pathways towards a better future for their fellow citizens.
The Local Pathways Fellowship is unpaid. The fellows will benefit from global visibility and exposure as champions for sustainable urban development, numerous opportunities to develop their expertise, as well as access to a vast network of SDG professionals and advocates.
The 2023 cohort of the Local Pathways Fellowship will bring together a network of 100 young thought leaders, urban planners, sustainability advocates, researchers and innovators from 100 different cities across the world to advance local dialogue, collaboration and problem solving around the Sustainable Development Goals and to make cities and urban settlements “smart, fair and sustainable”.
The LPF program is building on the success of the four cohorts under our belt. The Fellowship has recently expanded its team to increase the support and guidance provided for its fellows. The team has been constantly working on polishing the program curriculum that now focuses more on project development. The 2022 edition of the program also leverages global networking opportunities for its fellows. It aims to foster even more collaboration among fellows through cooperative assignments and peer-to-peer feedback. The fellows will be working more closely with the wider SDSN Youth network to build local connections through the SDG Students Hubs and SDSN’s national and regional networks for a bigger impact.
The 2023 Local Pathways Fellowship applications will be accepted from January 2nd until February 1st, 2023 at 11:59 p.m. (Eastern Standard Time). The selected fellows will be notified by February 26th, 2023, and the Fellowship begins on March 1st, 2023.
